Hi. i am 20 years of age and am new to this forum, i have been very very concered about lymphoma. i have been experiencing several symptoms such as chills ( that come and go), weight loss (around the neck and joints e.g wrist, elbows, knees, ankles) , swollen lymph nodes in neck ,armpit and groin for almost a year now and a persistant sore throut that i have had for about 7 months that wont go away also i have been experiancing lower back pain, this is becoming more and more of a concerned on how unwell i am. I have had many different blood tests and other tests such as a endoscopy and colonoscopy to rule out any other problems but they all came back normal. also i have had a biopsy (lymph node removed) on a lymph node in my neck that also came back negitive but i wasnt convinced on the node that they took out as this wasnt the largest node that i have in my neck and was definetly not the one i was most concered about as i have one that seems to be matted to another one and harder then the one that was taken out. also new lymph nodes keep poping up mostly in the neck that are not painfull.
i am now wating for a C.T scan and im terrified on what might be found. if anyone may have any ideas of the possibilties of what i may be looking at please place a reply as i am extreamly concerned and am getting no answers.
thank you very much for listening and hope to here back from someone soon.

  • Ask your doctor to run a bllod test against Toxoplasmosis ok will do but do u think that there is still a possibility that it could be lymphoma? i am still loosing weight even after 6 months, i thought with toxoplasmosis it doesnt seem to effect people like that??..

If it is anything serious, you are already prepared for it.After CT scan, get results, research the findings, ask various dr.s what's the next step, and walk through that door knowing you did all you could have done. It might be cancerous or it might be nothing. I have had a tumor of the spleen for three years and have not experienced any problems. But I was prepared for the worst because I agreed to accept it and move on.

I suggest getting an x-ray of your upper area like your chest. That's how I got diagnosed. There was a tumor in between my lungs that was causing my lymph nodes in my neck to swell. But there is a high cure rate for this cancer , like 90%. Catch it early. (before diagnose i had also been coughing for months)

  • I definitely sympathize with your situation. I've had a swollen lymph node in my neck (possibly 2) for almost 2 years now. I've had it checked out numerous times with vairous scans, x rays and biopsies but they've so far all come out negative. I'm doing another MRI in the coming months so hopefully that'll rule out anything serious. Just try to stay positive for the time being and try to find activities to take your mind off it. Waiting for results is always the toughest part and it can drive you nuts if you constantly worry about it. I foudn that exercising can do wonders for you and will help boost your spirits during the tough times. I hope all goes well for you and that nothing serious is developing. -cheers
